Anu Laura Tuttelberg presents a stop-motion film about flies and birds, which is as eerie as it sounds. Watch Fly Mill.

 The main character is a miller, dwelling in a watermill. He bakes daily bread and raises ducklings that he wishes to set them free one day. But on the neighboring field, hunters go to shoot birds.

The film cleverly proceeds from the fly affair (which would suggest a darker story) to the main purpose of feeding the insect-hungry birds. Suspense is built up to the very end of the film.

Anu-Laura Tuttelberg is an MA student of animation in the Estonian Academy of Arts. She is currently working as a set designer for a short stop motion animation film for children. Visit her personal page
